    i am facing a serious problem in XP sp2
    whenever i put the computer on, the computer automatically rebooted. i presumed it to be a virus and formatted the disk. i installed Xp again but the problem recurred just after reinstallation. is it a corrupt hard disk or a bad sector.
    pls help
    thnx

    Check SMPS, cables and RAM. I doubt if the harddisk is the culprit but better to check it out also... Also, during bootup verify that the fan is working correctly (u can check fan speed in the BIOS). Finally, please inform at what stage you get the restart... If it is after WinXP loads and logs you in, verify if automatic restart after error is set... And then, if you get any error messages, post the STOP code so that we can identify the error...

    Then, verify if the UPS is working properly... Sometimes, if overloaded, it can cause these problems... Restrict the UPS to support only Monitor and CPU (assuming you have a 500 VA UPS)... Any accessories such as Printers, Sound System, etc may be connected through Spike Buster to direct supply or you may use a second UPS for them...

    You can prevent the Automatic Reboot and display Blue screen to get the correct error message. To do this, goto system properties, click on Advanced tab. Under the Startup and recovery heading, click Settings. Under the system failure heading, uncheck the "Automatic restart" option.

    Do let us know if your problem is solved or not........

    ^^^ Hey, what do you mean copying my lines and posting them as a new post? If you look up at my post, they are the same word for word except the salutations and the sign-off...

    If you have nothing useful to add, dont do it... Reporting your post.

    the problem was not totally the SMPS fan. a static had burnt some capacitors. now they have been repaired. though, the fault for the capacitors was the SMPS fan.
    thnx for ur replies guys...

    I believe it is high time the moderators started a sticky thread about booting problems in Win XP. There must not be a single xp user who has never faced
    the booting hassels...

    Let there be one place where everyone can share their booting issues like
    boot loaders, repair mbr, repair XP boot loader after intalling/uninstalling linux,
    etc.
